Corner of TabStorage Tank Financial Responsibility Corner of Tab Highlights

Financial responsibility requirements exist to ensure that owners and operators of regulated petroleum storage tanks have the financial resources to pay for the cost of corrective action and compensating third parties for bodily injury and property damage that might result from a release from a petroleum storage tank system. Regulations specify how much financial assurance is required and the financial mechanisms that can be used to ensure that funds are available in the event that they are needed.

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is providing the information below to assist petroleum storage tank owners in understanding these Financial Responsibility requirements. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection does not endorse any particular insurance company nor does it attest to the accuracy of any information contained on any other web site.
